Lloyd Benedict Nolan (August 11, 1902 – September 27, 1985) was an American film and television actor.


Nolan was born in San Francisco, California, the son of Margaret and James Nolan, who was a shoe manufacturer. His parents disapproved of his choice of a career in acting, preferring that he join his father's shoe business, "one of the most solvent commercial firms in San Francisco."

Nolan served in the United States Merchant Marine before joining the Dennis Players theatrical troupe in Cape Cod. He began his career on stage and was subsequently lured to Hollywood, where he played mainly doctors, private detectives, and policemen in many film roles. He attended Santa Clara Preparatory School and Stanford University, flunking out of Stanford as a freshman "because I never got around to attending any other class but dramatics."

He was a brother in the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity (Sigma Rho chapter).

The film is a chronicle of forty years in the life of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, starting first in the time of Prohibition, as he enforced the law on bootlegging and organized crime. Later, the director comes up against the Red Scare of the 1950s, the Kennedys, the wave of change in the 1960s, and his hatred of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Examined here is the allegation that he had an 'abnormal' sexual life, along with his obsession with his dead mother.

Le détective privé, Mike Hammer est devenu alcoolique à la suite de la disparition de Valda, sa secrétaire, assistante et maîtresse. Un agent fédéral sur le point de mourir à la suite d'une blessure par balle, confie à la police qu'il ne livrera des informations sur son tueur qu'à Mark Hammer et à personne d'autre. La police « ramasse » Hammer dans la rue et après l'avoir passé à tabac et lui apprend que la balle qui a mortellement blessé le fédéral est la même que celle qui a abattu un sénateur influent l'an passé. On le conduit près du mourant, celui-ci donne le nom de code du tueur "le dragon" et lui indique que des précisions complémentaires sont disponibles dans une enveloppe à son nom à un kiosque à journaux où il a ses habitudes. Hammer comprend alors que la résolution de l'affaire peut l'aider à retrouver Valda puisqu'avant qu'elle ne disparaisse elle était à une réception chez le sénateur le soir où il a été abattu. Hammer aura du mal à remonter la filière d'autant que le marchand de journaux qu'il devait contacter est retrouvé assassiné et que la police voit d'un très mauvais œil Hammer empiéter sur ses prérogatives.
